Is Mr. C is packing his bags and ready to move into the new Internment Camps?

September 28, 2006

With the House of Representatives passage of the “Military Tribunal’s Bill” and the Senate likely to pass it today only one question remains. When do we, being anybody that disagrees with the conservatard way, move into the internment camps?

It could be something like during the 1940’s when the US government decided to round up all the Japanese citizens in California and move them to detention camps. That is if “we” are lucky. It could be more like the Nazi camps during WWII.

Do you think Mr. Conservatard is exaggerating? Then you need to dig a little deeper my friend. In an article printed in the Los Angeles Times called The White House Warden professor Bruce Ackerman of Yale describes some of the hidden features in the Military Tribunal Bill.

BURIED IN THE complex Senate compromise on detainee treatment is a real shocker, reaching far beyond the legal struggles about foreign terrorist suspects in the Guantanamo Bay fortress. The compromise legislation, which is racing toward the White House, authorizes the president to seize American citizens as enemy combatants, even if they have never left the United States. And once thrown into military prison, they cannot expect a trial by their peers or any other of the normal protections of the Bill of Rights.

…This dangerous compromise not only authorizes the president to seize and hold terrorists who have fought against our troops “during an armed conflict,” it also allows him to seize anybody who has “purposefully and materially supported hostilities against the United States.” This grants the president enormous power over citizens and legal residents. They can be designated as enemy combatants if they have contributed money to a Middle Eastern charity, and they can be held indefinitely in a military prison.

…Legal residents who aren’t citizens are treated even more harshly. The bill entirely cuts off their access to federal habeas corpus, leaving them at the mercy of the president’s suspicions.

Bruce Ackerman, Los Angeles Times, September 28, 2006

 

So if you have been offended by Mr. C’s occasional tongue in cheek names that he directs toward the people who are ruining this country, you can take heart. He will surely be labeled as an “enemy sympathizer” and placed in a deep dark cell somewhere. Never to upset the fragile illusion of what many in this glorious country call “The Republican Party”. Mr. C will soon be wishing that the Democrats could have been partying back in November 7th of 1999 again.
